Mount Gay 1703 rum includes rums aged between 10 and 30 years that are joined by master distiller Allen Smith.
Mount Gay Distilleries is the oldest operating distillery in the Americas - producing rum in Barbados since 1703, hence the rum's name. It's original name was Mount Gilboa, and in 1801 renamed Mount Gay after the distillery's manager Sir John Gay Alleyne.
Sec et gourmand, un excellent rhum. Le prix est assez aléatoire, parfois à moins de 80€ c’est le top !
Préférer celui ci aux différents mount gilboa et autres last wards !
No puedo negar que es muy buen ron, se parece un poco al Zacapa. Sin embargo por el precio compraría otro
Special rum. Price is like this rum.Special but good.Full length in the mouth ....caramel maybe...but everyone can taste and find others aroma. I think for this rum specially,the temperature must be a big factor.
Smooth and full of flavour. Make sure to sip and enjoy slowly.
This has lovely aromas and another great surprise, it's decent rum on the rocks with little added suger ... A delight to drink that could come from a pirate's rum cask ...
If you started, you drink it more and more. Soft, tasty, not too strong in flavor. Be careful not to finish the bottle at once!
Butter, caramel, tobacco, oak, plum, toffee, molasses, and ... Scotch? Yes, good Scotch. It took me a while to figure that part out. I kept tasting and trying to figure out what was it reminding me of? I knew it wasn't a common rum characteristic.(takes another taste) Yes! My mouth recognizes it, but not my nose. Odd and nice. I had thought that the difference in price from the XO to the 1703 would not be sufficient to qualify the doubling of the price, but that was wrong. This is very much its own animal.
Bought this especially for the Holidays. So glad I did. What a great experience. No additives or sugary explosions. Love everything about the taste. Molasses balanced with oak, nuts and a smidge of all spice and chocolate. Pricey but worth every penny. Sip sip sip away
I received this as an early Christmas gift this year from my wife, it's only half full now, and is delicious. A little expensive, but I'd buy it again!
Just a beautiful rum to sip and enjoy slowly. The flavours just develop in your pallet
I got a double to get something new, and im glad I did. This is a mild, semi smooth rum that I would have no problem drinking a lot of. Unfortunately I have to drive home. But i think it will make a great rumand coke, or umbrella drink. It's okay as a sipper, as I mentioned but it will shine as a mixer
The traditional mount gay flavor that you can come to expect. Smooth and full of flavor.
Just got about halfway through this bottle, rum is a good colour and leaves a good smooth after taste
The bottle is nice and heavy and says quality. I miss do some body, it is thinner then I expected and with less. aftertaste that I expected. But okay product!
Un rhum assez sec pour un de la Barbade. Il est très long en bouche bien qu'encore trop sec pour moi. Bonne dégustation!
The smoothest rum ever. Gorgeous flavours and a sweet aftertaste. Tastes of chocolate, caramel and fruit.
Ottimo rum in stile inglese, buon corpo e buona persistenza.
La paletta aromatica varia dal legno al cuoio invecchiato.
What can i tell about it?! Smooth, not too dry. Perfect
Had a great experience at the Distillery recently where I was introduced to this rum. I used to be a Zacapa XO drinker until I found this gem.
I find it best severed in chilled glass.
Un rom foarte fin, pentru cunoscători dar nu numai. O alegere excelentă pentru o seară de vară pe o plajă din Barbados bineînțeles :)
Another level of Mount Gay, much better than XO. Excelent texture and finish, a lot of flavor in palatin. Good job Mount Gay.
This amazing piece of rum craftsmanship represents everything I expect from a snobby rich expensive premium rum. It has a nose of vanilla, caramel, oak and slight notes of smoke and fruit. The palate clearly balances between vanilla, smoke and wood while the finish moves into the fruity direction. 9/10, would bang.
I like the bottle but for the price, it could be better. The color is rich, slightly amber. Smells of fruit dominate my nose, this transitions into flavor. It slightly balances out with a oak and vanilla finish. Very smooth, not much burn. The aftertaste lingers for a while. It's definitely a sipping rum. I think it's definitely overpriced, but it's still very good stuff.
Well, unlike most of the Rums, this one actually was much better than it smelled.
It has a nose that reminded me of a Single malt I have. The Glenfarclas 21y. A sort of earthy smell, almost as if it had turned bad. Let it breathe a while and the sweet is going to take over the first impression. Still on the nose a fairly low amount of alcohol...
In the mouth, not much to say, it s not far away from certain single malts, I think of Auchetochan Three woods, for example.
The aftertaste is long, bitter behind the tongue. I would say it s quite balanced, not too sweet, just tasty, subtle, rich, delicate. I see why people would give it a 9. But it's not truly a fantastic choice for me, so I give it an 8.
Ani ryba, ani rak, ono i to datum není tak úplně pravda a takový i ten rum.
"Především je nutno říct, že tato plantáž se původně jmenovala Mount Gilboa a v roce 1801 byla přejmenována na Mount Gay po jednom z nových majitelů, kterým byl John Gay Alleyne. Není tedy možné mít značku ještě před tím, než to jméno vůbec existovalo." Citace z magazínu Warehouse #1 News číslo 9.
